Dubowitz exam

The Dubowitz scale is a standardised scale for the estimation of newborn gestational age by neurological examination. The full exam is very extensive and scores 33 specific responses in four major areas: habituation (reponse to repetitive light and sound stimuli), movement and tone, reflexes, and neurobehavioral items.
